Without doubt, we are one of the oldest Danish shipping companies still in existence, proudly holding our 160 years anniversary during 2012.


E.W.v.d. Hude

E.W.v.d. Hude & Son was founded in 1852 in Svendborg Denmark by Mr. Eiler Wilhelm von der Hude. Although the technology has changed vastly from the 19th to the 21st century, our founding business principles remain the same. We value our customer’s requests and do our utmost to provide a reliable service in a highly professional, but friendly manner.


E.W.v.d. Hude & Son were originally ship owners from the sailing ship days, operating several schooners. Then came the steamship era, followed by motor-ships and in more recent years we became purely shipbrokers, dedicated to providing chartering services on a worldwide basis.

The company has always been family owned and run, with Henrik Thejll being the 5th generation of the family to uphold the same traditions and maintain the same integral spirit as when the firm was established over 160 years ago.


In 2020, the company changed its name to Hude ApS.


Please note that Hude ApS is not just another shipbroker in a crowded market. We are still in the family, we are still in Svendborg and we are still offering our clients a complete service prior to and after the conclusion of a fixture. The sails and ropes may have changed to engines and computers, but the level of service remains the same.
